DEERFIELD, Ill. - Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc. (NYSE: FBHS), an industry-leading home and security products company, today announced first quarter 2013 results and raised its annual outlook for sales and earnings per share. The Company also announced today a strategic acquisition, after declaring its first quarterly dividend earlier this week.

"Our strong results, including outperforming the market through profitable growth, are due to aggressive moves we've made over the last several years to position the Company to leverage the market recovery. We are increasing our annual outlook as well as driving incremental shareholder value by initiating a dividend and announcing a strategic acquisition," said Chris Klein, chief executive officer, Fortune Brands Home & Security.

First Quarter 2013

For the first quarter of 2013, net sales were $890 million, an increase of 11 percent over the first quarter of 2012. Diluted earnings per share were $0.22, compared to $0.08 in the prior year quarter. Diluted EPS before charges/gains was $0.24, compared to $0.08 the prior year.

Operating income was $56.6 million, compared to $21.3 million in the prior year quarter. Operating income before charges/gains was $62.4 million, compared to $20.9 million the prior year.

"Sales in our home products segments grew a combined 16 percent vs. last year, once again outperforming the market, with our cabinets, plumbing and entry doors performing especially well. Importantly, this was very profitable growth, with total company operating income before charges/gains tripling. New housing construction continued at a strong pace, and spending for home repairs and remodeling began to improve despite cooler weather in many parts of the country that held back exterior projects like windows," Klein said.

For each segment in the first quarter 2013, compared to the prior-year quarter:

• Kitchen & Bath Cabinetry net sales were up 11 percent, with operating income before charges/gains of $14.9 million vs. a loss of $3.9 million last year. Growth and share gains were driven across all parts of the business, with new construction leading the momentum.

• Plumbing & Accessories net sales were up 26 percent, and operating income before charges/gains was up 52 percent as share gains were evident across the business.

• Advanced Material Windows & Door Systems net sales were up 10 percent, with entry doors driving the gains.

• Security & Storage net sales were down 14 percent as planned, primarily driven by storage sales that faced unfavorable comparisons due to heavy promotional activity at a key retailer in the prior year. Segment operating income before charges/gains was up modestly.

Company Raises Annual Outlook for 2013

Based on the Company's performance and its expectation to continue outperforming the market for its home products, the Company now expects full-year 2013 net sales to increase 9 to 11 percent, excluding anticipated benefits from the acquisition discussed below. The Company now expects diluted EPS before charges/gains to be in the range of $1.23 to $1.33, also excluding anticipated benefits from the acquisition. This targeted range compares to 2012 diluted EPS before charges/gains of $0.89.

"We have the confidence to raise our annual outlook because the market is improving and our performance outpaced the recovering market," Klein said. "We are executing well, gaining share and growing profits."

Company Announces Dividend and Strategic Acquisition

On April 30, 2013, the Company announced its Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend payment of $0.10 per share of common stock. The Company is initiating this dividend approximately 19 months after becoming an independent company.

The Company announced today it has signed an agreement to acquire WoodCrafters Home Products, LLC, a leading, privately-owned manufacturer of bathroom vanities and tops with estimated annual sales of $230 million. The transaction is valued at approximately $300 million. WoodCrafters will become part of the Company's Kitchen & Bath Cabinetry segment and will greatly expand the Company's offerings of bathroom cabinetry.

"We've been a leader in kitchen and bath cabinets for years. WoodCrafters' strength in manufacturing vanities and vanity sink tops immediately strengthens our offerings for the bathroom, with more products, and more control over our supply chain and capacity in that category," said Klein. "The cabinet market is experiencing early stages of recovery. Now is the perfect time to add to our leadership position as the leading cabinet manufacturer in North America with this strategic acquisition."

WoodCrafters is headquartered in Weslaco, Texas and has approximately 2,000 associates. WoodCrafters operates manufacturing facilities in southern Texas and northern Mexico. The Company plans for WoodCrafters to operate as a business unit of MasterBrand Cabinets, Inc., the Company's kitchen & bath cabinetry unit, with its current management team, staffing, operations and locations.

The transaction is expected to be accretive to FBHS's earnings per share before charges/gains for the full year 2014 at $0.11 to $0.13 per share before future operating synergies. Any impact on 2013 EPS depends on the transaction's closing date and is not included in the Company's revised annual outlook announced above. The transaction is expected to be funded with a combination of cash on hand and the Company's existing credit facilities.

The closing of the transaction is subject to regulatory approval and is expected to occur prior to the end of 2013.

"Our consistently strong performance is providing the foundation to drive incremental shareholder value," said Lee Wyatt, chief financial officer. "The dividend reflects our confidence in ongoing cash flows, and we believe the acquisition will increase operating results in the second half of 2013. Even with these two actions, we expect our net-debt-to-EBITDA before charges/gains ratio to be less than 0.5 times at year-end. We expect our capital structure and free cash flow will continue to provide the fuel to both invest in the business and drive further incremental shareholder value in the future," Wyatt said.

"Our balance sheet remains solid," Wyatt said. "As of March 31, 2013, cash was $259 million, and debt remained at $326 million."

(a) Corporate expenses include the components of defined benefit plan expense other than service cost including actuarial gains and losses.
(b) Operating income (loss) before charges/gains is operating income (loss) derived in accordance with GAAP excluding restructuring and other charges, income from a contingent acquisition consideration adjustment and the impact of income and expense from actuarial gains or losses associated with our defined benefit plans. Operating income (loss) before charges/gains is a measure not derived in accordance with GAAP.

Management believes this measure provides investors with helpful supplemental information regarding the underlying performance of the Company from period to period. This measure may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies.
(c) Restructuring charges are costs incurred to implement significant cost reduction initiatives and include workforce reduction costs; "other charges" represent charges directly related to restructuring initiatives that cannot be reported as restructuring under GAAP. Such costs may include losses on disposal of inventories, trade receivables allowances from exiting product lines and accelerated depreciation resulting from the closure of facilities and gains or losses associated with the sale of closed facilities.
(d) Represents gain attributable to reduction of estimated liability for contingent consideration associated with a business acquisition.
(e) Represents actuarial losses associated with our defined benefit plans. Actuarial gains or losses in a period represent the difference between actual and actuarially assumed experience, principally related to liability discount rates and plan asset returns, as well as other actuarial assumptions including compensation rates, turnover rates, and health care cost trend rates. The Company recognizes actuarial gains or losses immediately in operating income to the extent they cumulatively exceed a "corridor." The corridor is equal to the greater of 10% of the fair value of plan assets or 10% of a plan's projected benefit obligation. Actuarial gains or losses are determined at required remeasurement dates which occur at least annually in the fourth quarter. Remeasurements due to plan amendments and settlements may also occur in interim periods during the year. Our Operating Income (loss) Before Charges/Gains reflects our expected rate of return on pension plan assets which in a given period may materially differ from our actual return on plan assets. Our liability discount rates and plan asset returns are based upon difficult to predict fluctuations in global bond and equity markets that are not directly related to the Company's business. We believe that the exclusion of actuarial gains or losses from Operating Income (loss) Before Charges/Gains provides investors with useful supplemental information regarding the underlying performance of the business from period to period that may be considered in conjunction with our operating income as measured on a GAAP basis. We present this supplemental information because such actuarial gains or losses may create volatility in our operating income that does not necessarily have an immediate corresponding impact on operating cash flow or the actual compensation and benefits provided to our employees. The table below sets forth additional supplemental information on the Company's historical actual and expected rate of return on plan assets, as well as discount rates used to value its defined benefit obligations:

DILUTED EPS BEFORE CHARGES/GAINS RECONCILIATION

Diluted EPS before charges/gains is net income calculated on a diluted per-share basis excluding restructuring and other charges, income from a contingent acquisition consideration adjustment and the impact of income and expense from actuarial gains or losses associated with our defined benefit plans. Diluted EPS before charges/gains is a measure not derived in accordance with GAAP. Management uses this measure to evaluate the overall performance of the Company and believes this measure provides investors with helpful supplemental information regarding the underlying performance of the Company from period to period. This measure may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies.
For the first quarter of 2013, diluted EPS before charges/gains is net income calculated on a diluted per-share basis excluding $1.2 million ($0.8 million after tax) of restructuring and other charges and the impact of expense from actuarial losses associated with our defined benefit plans of $4.6 million ($3.1 million after tax or $0.02 per diluted share).

For the first quarter of 2012, diluted EPS before charges/gains is net income calculated on a diluted per-share basis excluding $1.6 million ($1.0 million after tax or $0.01 per diluted share) of restructuring and other charges, and income from a contingent acquisition consideration adjustment of $2.0 million ($1.2 million after tax or $0.01 per diluted share).

For the full year, the Company is targeting diluted EPS before charges/gains to be in the range of $1.23 to $1.33 per share, excluding anticipated benefits from the acquisition. On a GAAP basis, the Company is targeting diluted EPS to be in the range of $1.21 to $1.31 per share, also excluding anticipated benefits from the acquisition. The Company's GAAP basis EPS range assumes the Company incurs no additional actuarial gains or loss associated with its defined benefit plans subsequent to March 31, 2013.

(a) Operating income (loss) before charges/gains is operating income (loss) derived in accordance with GAAP excluding restructuring and other charges and income from a contingent acquisition consideration adjustment. Operating income (loss) before charges/gains is a measure not derived in accordance with GAAP. Management uses this measure to determine the returns generated by FBHS and to evaluate and identify cost-reduction initiatives. Management believes this measure provides investors with helpful supplemental information regarding the underlying performance of the Company from period to period. This measure may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies.

(b) Other charges represents charges directly related to restructuring initiatives that cannot be reported as restructuring under GAAP. Such costs may include losses on disposal of inventories, trade receivables allowances from exiting product lines and accelerated depreciation resulting from the closure of facilities and gains or losses associated with the sale of closed facilities.
